Over 750 works, the greatest concentration of Florentine monumental sculpture in the world: statues and medieval and Renaissance reliefs in marble, bronze and silver of the greatest artists of the time.
Masterpieces made for the exteriors and interiors of the Baptistery of San Giovanni, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and Giotto's Bell Tower.
You will be astonished by the hall of Paradise where the original golden door by Ghiberti stands right in front of the medieval façade of the cathedral, entirely reconstructed in 1:1 scale. It is in this room that the young Michelangelo carved his famous piece, David, commissioned by the bishop at the time. You will have the chance to stand in front of the Pietà by Michelangelo, the sole sculptural masterpiece made by the artist for himself: his memorial.
Your art historian guide will engage you with stories about the golden mosaic of the baptistery and will tell you anecdotes about the many wonders of Renaissance protagonists such as Brunelleschi, Donatello, Michelangelo and Leonardo.
Your guide will leave you at the Brunelleschi terrace, just in front of the dome, a perfect pick for your memory of Florence.
